Hi there everyone. I hope you are all managing to have a relaxing weekend with those that you love.
Oh! I did show hubby the post I wrote about him when I was last here, and I could see that he was quite touched by it, and he said "thank you"! I think I might have earnt some brownie points there. Hee Hee!!
I know that it's my Sunday Snaps post today, but, first of all, I've noticed that I have gained a few new Followers recently, so I would just like to say to them "thank you" for taking the trouble to follow my Blog - it's lovely to have you on board! I don't know if any of you have noticed the same thing, but I find that new Followers seem to come to me in little groups. When I get one new Follower, a couple more always seem to pop up within a few days!
Do you like the new shopping bag I recently bought, for my food shopping? I love the colour and I love the quotation. In my case at the moment, I think it should read "If Music be the Food of Love, EAT on"! I don't know what's wrong with me at the moment, but since New Year, I have just been SO hungry all the time and, you know what it's like, for quickness, you always pick up the wrong thing! Eeeek!! I shall have to stop, otherwise a very tubby Thisisme will start appearing on your screens!! Anyway, enough of this jollity - here is my new bag!
Whilst looking through some things in the week, I came across some more vintage (or, in another word, "old"!!) photos, of me when I was a little girl, so I thought you might like to see them. Bear in mind, we are talking about the early 1950's here. The thing that always amazes me is how my dad is always dressed in a sports jacket and a collar and tie, even when we are obviously on a casual day out, playing with the ball and having a picnic. Times have certainly changed!!
I always seem to have the obligatory bow of ribbon in my hair in most of my childhood photos! Check out the car in the photo with mum and I. (Mum doesn't look too happy, but I don't think that people used to smile quite so much when they were having their photos taken 'in the olden days'. LOL!).
I can still remember my dad spending hours with me, trying to teach me how to catch the ball, and him saying "watch the ball". I was never very successful, I'm afraid, and that seemed to start the sorry story of me and any sort of sports! I was never into sports I'm afraid. Probably stemmed from when you had to run around a freezing cold hockey field in your navy blue serge knickers. Happy days - NOT!!! I have always enjoyed watching sport though. I know my place!
Well, that's it for this edition of Sunday Snaps. I hope you have enjoyed looking at them. To me they represent a different era - a somehow more gentle, mannerly era. See you again soon little peeps!
